Don’t miss out if you’re eligible

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has so far handed out over £20m in Government relief grants to around 1,850 eligible local businesses, which is 61 per cent of the businesses we think are eligible under Government criteria and wrote to three weeks ago.

The council is working closely with New Anglia LEP, other local councils and business groups to ensure our local businesses get the support they are entitled to during these challenging times.

If you are an eligible business which has not yet claimed your money, please complete the online form as soon as possible in order to get your grant paid out. The form is a simple data-capture process asking for information each business should have easy access to, and council staff are available to help over the phone if needed.

Please visit   for the link to the online form, information and support about the grants, eligibility criteria and further business advice. For advice relating to the grants, call our Business Helpline on 0808 196 2240. For other business advice, contact the Growth Hub via 0300 333 6536 or

Please note: Grant forms can take up to five working days to process and for funds to reach bank accounts. However, should there be any errors, omissions or duplications in the form, this timeframe may be longer. Please only submit one form per business and be wary of third-party companies offering to complete your grant form for a fee.
